Replicare C Fri, 23 Sep 2022 04:07:30 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Replicare C 32 32 How A+E Networks cross-promotes podcasts to improve discovery Fri, 23 Sep 2022 04:07:30 +0000

A major challenge for just about anyone with a podcast these days is the issue of discovery. As more and more publishers invest in producing podcasts, it becomes increasingly difficult to find and grow an audience. At A+E Networks, one way to overcome this problem is to cross-promote, both internally and externally.

“Cross-promoting your podcast and other podcasts remains the most effective way to find a new audience,” said Jessie Katz, vice president of audio programming and podcasting for A+E Networks, on Wednesday at Digiday. Publishing Summit in Key Biscayne, Florida. .

A+E Networks offers 13 podcasts, with a mix of podcasts paired with TV shows on the A&E, Lifetime, and History channels; podcasts derived from these original shows and podcasts.

A+E Networks markets its podcasts to its large television audience, with the coordination of marketing teams that support the company’s podcasts and television shows.

“We get a lot of airplay, with promos and bumpers and lower thirds promoting our podcasts,” Katz said. On the podcast side, “we always reserve promotional space on our podcast to promote our on-air initiatives, our specials and our premieres”.

As a result, A+E’s podcasts often experience a surge in listeners for at least a few weeks when the shows are promoted on TV. “For example, we might see a 40% increase in listens after promoting a podcast on air. audience after that,” Katz said.

That tactic doesn’t always work, Katz admitted, and A+E is still testing that strategy.

On the other hand, getting deals with other production companies and platforms “has been huge for us,” Katz told DPS. A+E Networks is working with WNYC and Cadence13 on some of its podcasts, which are “companies that already have their own massive, highly engaged audiences,” and content roster, Katz said. Working together has “boosted” A+E Networks’ efforts, bringing production and sales resources closer together.

Partnerships are also helpful for podcasts to reach larger audiences, Katz said. Both companies can advertise the shows they do together, as well as run promos for other shows on their own networks. Co-produced podcasts find an audience “faster” than those without a partner, Katz said.

But the trade-off is to split the revenue with someone else. A+E Networks makes money from its podcasts with advertising, specifically host-read and dynamically-inserted ads, or programmatic ads that run in unsold inventory.

A+E considers a number of factors before deciding to bring in an outside company: whether or not the show can be produced in-house by A+E Networks’ small in-house team, where intellectual property and how much money each partner will market the podcast, Katz said.

“These things are all the pros and cons that we weigh when we think about how much revenue we’re willing to share,” she said. But spitting out some of a podcast’s revenue is worth it, if it means reaching a “really large audience,” Katz added.

Capi partners with Malfy Gin for its new mixer Wed, 21 Sep 2022 23:30:00 +0000

Australian beverage company Capi has teamed up with Malfy Gin for the launch of its sixth all-natural ingredient mixer Sunset Tonic – a rose-hued ode to coastal sunsets around the world.

“Consumer research indicates that the post-pandemic appetite for spirits and home blenders shows no signs of slowing down, so we wanted to launch something new and impactful to elevate the category,” says Emma Evans, CEO of the Capi group.

Designed to capture the imagination of conservatory mixologists everywhere, Capi Sunset Tonic is perfectly paired with the refreshing expression of Malfy Gin’s citrus-flavored limone and poured over ice in a classic tumbler to create the perfect gin and tonic at the sweet taste called Malfy Sunset.

“We have seen the rise of flavored gins in Australia, and easy perfect serving with a blend of Malfy Con Limone and Capi Sunset is ideal to continue to build consumer confidence in the use of these gins. We tested our four Malfy gin flavors, but it was the combination with Con Limone that balanced the citrus and fruit profiles with the traditional gin and tonic flavors,” says Eric Thomson, Pernod-Ricard Global Marketing Director. .

Harnessing the restorative energy of the sun and housed in CAPI’s signature 750ml recycled glass bottle, the perfectly homemade toner exudes bright notes of acidity, sweet pink grapefruit and tangerine, highlighted by Mount Lake salt. Zero and containing 25% less sugar than its predecessor, CAPI Classic Tonic. Likewise, delicious sun-ripened Italian lemons and Amalfi lemon zest enhance the fine botanicals and hand-picked juniper to make Malfy Con Limone an essential gin for any home bar.

“Sunset Tonic really sums up the CAPI brand and our position in the market today, ten years later.” explains CAPI’s director of product innovation, Thurman Wise. “His profile is honest and uses the highest quality ingredients. His proposal is a refresh. And its opaque pink color evokes the vibrant nature of summer coastal skies.

In keeping with Capi’s unwavering dedication to sustainable practices, the brand commissioned Victorian glass artist, Billy Crellin of Studio Dokola, to recast over 200 recycled Capi bottles into a strictly limited capsule of mouth-blown, narrow-rimmed tumblers. for the tonic. Release.

Bottling the brilliance of coastal afternoon sunsets, the locally produced, all-natural Sunset Tonic is the sixth product mix in the Capi brand’s growing beverage portfolio, which boasts over 20 impressive products from around the world. water, soda and pour.

Sunset Tonic’s unique all-natural ingredients include carbonated water, fructose, citric acid, flavors, natural colors, salt, and cinchona extract (0.5%). Capi Sunset Tonic will be available to buy from retailers across Australia from September, including select Coles and BWS outlets, and Dan Murphy Victorian stores. It will also be available to buy online at and through Amazon.

‘World’s first’ hydrogen project raises questions about its role in powering future homes | Hydrogen energy Tue, 20 Sep 2022 15:29:00 +0000

OOn the north shore of the Firth of Forth, the royal blue waters lap against the weathered walls of Methil Docks. The docks were once a hub for coal exports but, since the late 1970s, they have not dealt with the black stuff. Today, the city on Scotland’s east coast is flirting with another era of the energy industry, but it doesn’t seem to be going as planned.

In what has been dubbed a “world’s first project”, called H100, around 300 homes in Methil and neighboring Buckhaven in Levenmouth were to be supplied with “green hydrogen” gas from next year. Customers are offered free hydrogen-ready boilers and cookers under the program, which is expected to last at least four years.

In the £32million project, National Grid will for the first time use something other than natural gas in its distribution network in what will supposedly be the world’s first 100% hydrogen network for consumers. H100 hopes to address the need for alternative energy sources to gas, especially as heating accounts for around 37% of all UK carbon emissions.

However, the project has been hit by delays – including in the construction of a flagship ‘demonstration facility’. Some are now openly questioning whether this is a worthwhile endeavor and whether hydrogen will play a significant role in powering the homes of the future.

Green hydrogen is produced by separating water using electricity from renewable energy, with minimal emissions. According to plans, an existing 7-megawatt, 200-meter-tall offshore wind turbine would be used to power an electrolyser at nearby Fife Energy Park before hydrogen is stored and transported to homes through a newly laid pipe network .

Graph showing the difference between grey, blue and green hydrogen.

Households were to be connected during 2023, with the project continuing until the end of March 2027, theoretically saving more than 2,650 tonnes of CO2 In the process. It is envisaged that a second phase could extend it to 1,000 households. Six huge tanks will store five tons of hydrogen, enough for about five days at peak.

The project is managed by gas distributor SGN and funded by a group of parties including regulator Ofgem, the Scottish government and distribution companies Cadent, Northern Gas Networks and Wales and West Utilities. Ofgem is the biggest backer, contributing £18m after H100 won funds through its annual Network Innovation Competition, with the Scottish Government providing almost £7m. Appliance suppliers, including Baxi and Bosch, are also involved.

Households, who will stay with their current energy supplier, will receive free appliances and maintenance and will not pay more than the equivalent price of gas. The pilot is intended to test public interest and acceptance of hydrogen devices, safety issues and home supply logistics.

A gleaming demonstration building was planned as the centerpiece of the project – a mock-up similar to a show home in a new-build housing estate. It was supposed to be finished in early February but is still in its infancy, according to local sources.

Recruitment for the program was due to begin in late 2021, with campaigning beginning in earnest in March. However, it is understood that the leaflets were not distributed to the public until May and that the properties are expected to be signed by September 22. It is estimated that around a third of local households would need to participate to reach the 300 house target, although Ofgem says between 180 and 250 houses would be a sufficient sample size. The first hydrogen production and storage system should be operational by Christmas.

SGN declines to comment on exact timelines and registrations, but H100 project manager Craig McCafferty says, “Working across the constraints of the global supply chain, SGN is committed to delivering hydrogen to customers in soon as possible. Construction will continue through 2022 and 2023 with commissioning activities and hydrogen for early customers to follow thereafter. Sources close to the project insist recruitment is on track.

Ofgem warned that “a delay in the start of this project would have a significant impact on the evidence base of a transition of the energy system to hydrogen as a means of decarbonising heat and industry”.

There are also concerns that the choice of location could give unrepresentative national results, as the community is one of the most deprived areas in Scotland. Professor Alastair Lewis, from the National Center for Atmospheric Science at the University of York, said: “There is a problem that is not envisaged that we could end up with wealthier people with houses powered by pumps heat and solar panels because they have the space, while in low income areas with less space they are heated with fuel like hydrogen which has the potential to create pollution.

In the long term, UK distribution companies are considering blending small amounts of hydrogen with natural gas. However, Lewis says the potential for nitrogen oxide emissions must be considered before boilers using a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas are widely adopted in the UK.

Critics of the project provide a microcosm of the long-running debate over the place of hydrogen in the energy transition. Proponents say hydrogen is an essential piece of the puzzle, not least to help make heavy industry greener. Critics say it is too expensive and that the focus should instead be on increasing the production of other forms of energy, such as wind and solar. Short-term cost concerns have been partly resolved by the fact that wholesale gas prices have increased this year. This week, specialist ITM Power said the price increases had underlined the benefits of switching to green hydrogen production.

Alex Lee, climate campaigner at Friends of the Earth, says: “Keeping our homes and buildings warm is a major contributor to climate pollution, but people need real financial help and expertise to make the necessary changes.

He adds: ‘Rather than wasting millions supporting these industrial projects like H100, which are inefficient and expensive, the Scottish Government should instead invest in electrification of heating and ensure homes are built or upgraded to standard. the highest.

“By embracing heat pumps and building heat networks, ministers can help reduce fuel poverty as well as reduce climate emissions from our homes.”

Mark Ruskell, MSP for Central Scotland and Fife, said: “I’m really skeptical. It is very difficult to obtain enough hydrogen to heat a large number of homes – this is much more the case in industrial sectors, which are difficult to decarbonise. It is an interesting project but it should not define the direction of energy policy.

In November 2020, the Prime Minister set a target of reaching five gigawatts of hydrogen capacity and creating a “hydrogen city” by 2030. Last year, in the government’s strategy on the hydrogen, this target was increased to 10 gigawatts on the same date, but did not detail an important role for hydrogen in home heating. The British government must decide in 2026 if it plans to use hydrogen for heating homes. Those working on the Fife Pilot will need to act quickly if this program is to make a meaningful contribution to this conversation.

NASA records the sound of a space rock crashing into Mars Mon, 19 Sep 2022 19:57:55 +0000

For the first time, NASA has captured the eerie sound of a meteoroid sailing through another planet’s atmosphere and crashing to the ground.

The recording, posted September 19 on YouTube, combines “seismic and acoustic waves” detected when a space rock hit Mars on September 5, 2021, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a press release.

Lasting only around 3 seconds, the sound begins with a whistle – the rock flying through the sky – and ends with “bloops”.

“This was the first time the sound of a meteoroid impact was picked up on another planet, and it might not be what you expected,” the lab reports.

NASA reports that these three craters were formed on September 5, 2021 by a meteoroid impact on Mars and were “the first to be detected by NASA’s InSight”. NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona

“You hear three ‘bloops’ representing distinct moments of impact: the meteoroid entering Mars’ atmosphere, exploding into pieces and hitting the ground. The particular sound is caused by an atmospheric effect that was also observed in the deserts on Earth, where low sounds arrive before high sounds.

The meteoroid – “the term for incoming space rocks before they hit the ground” – exploded into at least three pieces, leaving three distinct craters, scientists said.

NASA said its InSight lander picked up the seismic waves and NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter flew over the impact site and photographed “three dark spots on the surface.”

A September 19 paper in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Geoscience reports that NASA has recorded four meteorite impacts on Mars since August 2021, “between 53 and 180 miles (85 and 290 kilometers) from InSight’s location. “.

All four produced quakes (like quakes) in the magnitude 2.0 range, officials said.

“Researchers are wondering why they haven’t detected more meteoroid impacts on Mars,” NASA said.

“The Red Planet sits next to the Solar System’s main asteroid belt, which provides enough space rock to scar the planet’s surface. Because Mars’ atmosphere is just 1% thicker than that of Earth, more meteoroids pass through it without disintegrating, ”explains NASA.

It’s possible other impacts have occurred since InSight landed in 2018, but they’ve been “obscured by wind noise or seasonal changes in the atmosphere,” the InSight team says. .

The paper’s lead author, Raphael Garcia of the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace de France in Toulouse, says these impact sites “are the clocks of the solar system”.

“Scientists can roughly estimate the age of a planet’s surface by counting its impact craters: the more they see, the older the surface is,” he said in the press release.

]]> Sonos’ prices for its subwoofers make them a tough sell Sun, 18 Sep 2022 11:00:35 +0000

REVIEW: Sonos’ latest product is out – although it’s not like it’s a surprise. There have been whispers about a smaller sub since late last year, the only surprise is how long it took.

And the launch of the Sub Mini struck a familiar note as previous Sonos subwoofers – it’s quite expensive.

It’s not like there aren’t expensive subwoofers on the market. KEF has a subwoofer that costs £1300, Bose’s Soundbar bass module is £800, while Sony’s current range of bass amplifiers have one that costs £649. If you are a home theater lover after the best performance, you will pay what you deem appropriate.

But it feels like Sonos keeps repeating the same mistake with its subwoofers, in that each one is as expensive, if not more so, than its partner speaker. The Sonos Sub Gen 3 has an RRP of $749 / £749, not far off the Arc’s RRP of £899. The Sonos Sub Mini is $429 / £429, which is only slightly less than the $449 / £449 of the Sonos Beam Gen 2. If you wanted to pair the Sub Mini with the Ray, it’s a lot more expensive than its asking price of $279/£279.

There’s a hole – possibly the same one in the Sub Mini – that Sonos never really threaded the needle with its subwoofers. The Sony HT-A7000 (£1299) can be paired with the £699 SWA-S5 – pricey to be sure – but at nearly half the price, if you’re willing to pay that much for the soundbar itself, the sub does not. also seem exorbitant. Compared to the speakers they’re supposed to pair with, Sonos’ subs are very expensive, limiting its appeal only to those who feel compelled to add a sub to their system. It’s not a sub for more casual users and it could have been.

Sonos Sub Mini press shot

If it was me, I would have to think long and hard before making this decision. It should be a relatively simple decision to make.

The price of subwoofers makes them less of an impulse buy and more of a decision you make later. I would say the bass is an integral part of the cinematic experience – some may disagree, but that’s a matter of taste – and the price sends the wrong message, putting it on the back burner.

Or it says the right thing: that bass is a key part of the experience and you have to pay the requisite value. But to me, the direction the soundbar/home theater sound market is heading with single bar systems often not including a subwoofer, and the sub is seen as an accessory and not the main meal.

And so, I wonder how many people will grab Sonos to buy the Sub Mini. It’s a good idea for those with smaller rooms, but I imagine the market for that type of person leans towards a more casual market, and Sonos’ pricing for its subwoofers makes it a tougher sell.

Developers file plans for $11million multi-story building on unassuming Ballarat side street Sat, 17 Sep 2022 22:57:50 +0000

Plans have been filed with the City of Ballarat to construct a six-storey mixed-use building on a small one-way street dominated by loading docks and parking lots.

The $11 million project is the type of development the council has encouraged in the city centre, bringing more residents to the CBD and making better use of prime real estate.

Project architect Alan Morton said a lot of work had been done to ensure the building would blend in with the surrounding mix of heritage-listed buildings.

“There’s a lot of red brick in this locality, some blue stone too, so we’re really borrowing from that existing materiality and saying ‘yes, we’re going brick,'” he said.

The site is at the foot of a small hill. Mr Morton said this helped design the building so that it does not dominate the city skyline.

“The idea is that it fits in with the existing neighbors, especially the old YMCA building, but also with what’s going on around that neighborhood,” he said.

“It remains at the same level as the two-story terraces along Camp Street as they now exist.”

The development site is one of several car parks dominating the center of Ballarat.(ABC Ballarat: Patrick Laverick)

Associate Professor Andrew Butt of RMIT’s Center for Urban Research said developing underused plots of land in the city center would bring housing closer to established transport links and services.

‘New development in South and West Ballarat also comes with costs, which are car dependency and waiting for services to be provided over several years,’ he said.

“Here you have a ready-made environment for people – things like transport services and retail.”

Mr Butt said developers could learn from poorly executed urban renewal to ensure large-scale projects like this get support from locals.

“We had a period in Melbourne where high levels of growth and high levels of housing demand – particularly for flats – resulted in poorer examples and probably disappointing examples of some prime locations,” a- he declared.

“If the time is right where people want to do this kind of development, we have to understand that these are buildings that will be around for a few generations, and we need them done right.”

Sound of gunfire captured on surveillance camera during murder of LSU student; about a dozen gunshots heard in new recording Sat, 17 Sep 2022 21:26:51 +0000

BATON ROUGE — Newly discovered audio captured the moment someone fired a barrage of bullets at an LSU student as she was stopped at a railroad crossing.

The attack killed 21-year-old Allison Rice early Friday morning. Police found her around 2 a.m. inside the bullet-riddled car, stopped on the east side of the lanes on Government Street, just east of I-110.

A person living nearby told WBRZ on Friday that he heard gunshots as the train passed. Glass and other markings at the scene suggest Rice’s vehicle was flipping over when someone fired through its windshield.

Audio obtained a day later by the WBRZ investigative unit – recorded on a nearby surveillance system – captured the shooting. The attack was not seen on video, but in the nearly one-minute recording, a dozen gunshots can be heard as a train passes. Once the hail of gunfire has stopped, the sound of car tires screeching can be heard.

On Saturday, the Baton Rouge Police Department had little to publicly share about the investigation and said it was still pursuing potential leads.

“Detectives are talking to neighbors in this community, reaching out to business owners to see if we can review some surveillance footage they may have,” said BRPD spokesman L. ‘Jean McKneely, at WBRZ Saturday morning.

Police have yet to say what the apparent motive for the attack was.

More help for residents concerned about planning lapses Fri, 16 Sep 2022 15:21:03 +0000

Residents concerned about possible planning failures in their neighborhood will soon have access to updated advice, information and practical help.

New city application plan

We are releasing our new local planning application plan for the city later this month. The plan aims to help residents find information about potential planning failures as well as guidance on when and how to request an investigation.

The plan also defines the board’s powers and procedures, including actions that can be taken to resolve issues, possible outcomes, and what the enforcement team can and cannot do.

Councilors approved the plan at a meeting of the Tourism, Equalities, Communities and Culture Committee on September 15.

Investigate complaints

As the local planning authority, we have a duty to investigate complaints, determine whether planning failures have occurred and, if so, take enforcement action.

Council Planning Enforcement Officers investigate:

  • planning control failures
  • unauthorized work on listed buildings
  • unauthorized advertisements
  • messy grounds and poorly maintained buildings

When making decisions, officers are guided by the National Planning Practice Guidance as well as the local enforcement plan.

Hundreds of requests

Every year, our administrators receive hundreds of complaints about potential planning failures and requests for investigation.

However, many of them are not planning or at a stage where they could take action. These include:

  • work that has not started
  • rumors that work will take place
  • legal disputes unrelated to a planning violation, including party wall issues, land ownership and boundary disputes
  • high hedges
  • work on trees not associated with a planning violation

Officers use both case law and appeal decisions to help decide if development has taken place and if planning permission is required.

No failure to plan

A large proportion of the cases reviewed by officers result in a decision that there is no failure to plan. For instance:

  • the work does not require a building permit / consent
  • the building permit and other necessary authorizations have been granted by law
  • the work does not deviate from the approved plans
  • development is immune to action
  • the building permit granted does not control the progress of the construction. Major developments, in general, are subject to conditions requiring Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMPS) to be agreed before work begins.

In many cases planning permission is not required as national rules classify the works as permitted development.

In cases where development has taken place and planning permission is required, or where planning permission is granted and conditions are not met, officers should determine whether enforcement action is required. justified.

If not, no further action will be taken.

Reduce complaints

By providing clear advice and guidance under the new enforcement plan, including information on how to check whether planning permission or classified planning permission has been granted or is required, and the circumstances in what action will be taken, officers hope to reduce the number of such requests.

This will free up more time to prioritize requests and resolve scheduling violations that cause damage.

Developer tips

The enforcement plan also gives residents information on how their requests will be handled and prioritized, as well as what steps they can take to resolve issues themselves. There is also advice for residents and developers who may have committed a planning breach on what they should do to fix the problem.

Many cases are resolved through negotiation or an agreement to perform repair work.

Avoid disputes

Councilor Martin Osborne, Co-Chair of the TECC Committee said:

“Whether it’s minor changes to our home or a major development, planning applications and building regulations directly affect the lives of so many residents and business owners.

“It is natural that new building activity can cause neighbors concern, and this new policy aims to help owners and developers avoid conflicts and understand what council officers can and cannot do.

“Decisions taken by officers are made within the framework of national laws, rules and guidelines. Like all local authorities, we are often bound by national policy and regulations within which we must operate.

“We hope this new policy will help to avoid many other common misunderstandings and make clear how we will act in the event of major breaches of planning regulations.”
